The City of Maypearl and Friends of Maypearl celebrated America's independence with a firework spectacular and several family-friendly events Saturday afternoon.

There was even live music, a street dance, a parade and a pageant at the Maypearl Community Park.

“We were looking for a way to bring the community together, and what better way than to celebrate America’s Independence,” asked Stephen Daniel, a board member of Friends of Maypearl.

He previously told the Daily Light the evening is "just an all-out celebration, and it ends with the fireworks spectacular, which I think rivals pretty much any town."
